Live Music

Lushy

2010
Seattle, WA
Bass

Joined these old friends during their stint as a ten-member live act. Dirty little secret is that I'd never owned a suit before I gigged with this stylish band.

Downpilot

2005
Seattle, WA
Bass

Played bass with Downpilot for a few months before their original bassist decided to rejoin. Short stint for me and I never got to record with Downpilot, but I'm a huge fan of Paul's songs and glad I got the chance to play.

An American Starlet

2001 - 2006
Seattle, WA
Acoustic Guitar, Bass, Keyboards

Fulfilled two life-long music dreams by going on tour with a band and recording an album that had a barcode on it. We were critically well received but rarely ventured out of Ballard. Eventually the singer/songwriter quit the band and moved to L.A. like a true rock star. But not before I learned a ton of stuff about recording from him.

The Shiners

1998 - 2001
Seattle, WA
Bass

After a brief stint in complex Seattle pop band Epigene, I went to the other end of the spectrum and got a classic country education by playing with the Shiners. We were a bar band, playing three hour sets and getting drunks to dance in varying degrees of earnestness to old-school country. To this day I know of no other country band which based a love song on quantum physics. Band split when the singer/songwriter decided he was too old for the music racket, broke up the band and moved back South.

Coffee Shop Trio

1992 - 1994
State College, PA
Acoustic Guitar

Acoustic cover band featuring myself on guitar backing two female vocalists. We mostly performed songs by folky female acts of the era: Indigo Girls, etc.

Dorothy Fell

1990 - 1992
State College, PA
Bass

Local alternative rock act in my college town.
